around Rowes Spring. The site we wish
this with other lands lying near that
spring & other springs near by which
we have secured from other parties
will give us about 4,000. acres entirely
ours now. Then the additional 2500.
which we hold &{underlined} control{underlined}, but if we

half the proceeds will give us control
of say 6,500 acres. This with the
other grants is a magnificant domain,

I shall signify my {illegible: more?} {illegible: assent?}

Arrangements are being made
to take all the Beersheba house
up the mountain on the Sewanee R.
Road this summer. The place to stop at
is Cowan just beyond the Tunnel.
